Dear Friend of Core Evolution,
We are living in unprecedented times. While the whole world tries to stop the effect of COVID-19 on our lives, we all contribute by caring for ourselves and others, to stay healthy and strong. Since health and well-being is also the guiding principle of our work, we suspended all direct-contact seminars so far until the beginning of our new trainings in August 2020. Until then we conduct individual and group work online.
We all have become used to the term ‘social distancing’ - but it is more meant as physical distancing. Socialis (latin) means allied or feeling connected and socius (latin) means friend. Especially in these times of physical isolation, and for many it is also personal hardship; let us stay connected with our hearts and minds, as we navigate this difficult phase in our history.
This is the time, where we must practice what we teach - empathy and compassion and the wisdom of the Body-Mind.
In Core Evolution we offer down to earth tools:
• to stay in contact with oneself
• to regulate our body- and nervous system
• to reach a place of coherence
• to act from a sense of embodiment and presence and inner leadership.
During these difficult times, from April 19 until May 31, 2020 we will offer every Sunday at 9 am California time a meeting place to come together. Siegmar will lead a tuning in/body scan/meditation with a short lecture on body, mind and consciousness and the healing of trauma, followed by Q&A from participants.
These meetings of 45 minutes and 20 minutes Q&A are free of charge.
Let us know if you would like to participate and we will send you the access: https://www.coreevolution.de/en/contact.html

Every pandemic poses a threat to our existence. For eons, mankind has suffered existential threats again and again. This information of our ancestors, generations and families is still in the Universal Consciousness or the Akashic Field. In our embodiment, we enter into this field of experience on all levels of our existence. Depending on our constitution and resources, we may get overwhelmed and traumatized; in the moment of fear and existential threat we can get triggered and re-traumatized, or, we can meet the challenge and lead the situation to a healthy integration and healing.
In Core Evolution this takes place on the physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual / consciousness level and ultimately leads to the healing of Individual, Family, Generational and Collective Trauma - for decades expressed in our statement:
Integrate Your Past • Be in the Present • Shape Your Future™
Never in history have we been so consciously and technically connected on this globe as now. This is where the present challenge can also become a great opportunity for transformation in which everybody can participate, individually and collectively. This process is not easy and often needs support to raise the awareness of how we hold these patterns of history in our system. This is where the integrative, body-oriented and mindfulness-centered approach of Core Evolution has been offering support now for over 40 years.
To extend our present support and contribution in these difficult times, Siegmar offers to all new clients and searchers, a 30-minute, free, individual consultation. If you decide to continue after these initial 30 minutes, we will offer the discounted fee, which normally only Core Evolution Trainees receive, until the end of May 2020.
Feel free to reach out and contact us: http://www.coreevolution.de/en/contact.html
This crisis will also pass. It is good to stay vigilant and aware of how you can support the process of healing, individually and in society. At the same time, it is important to stay mindful with your Body-Mind Process, to keep an energy dynamic alive, stay in open and caring communication, center/meditate, so that you can contribute with your energy, knowledge and love - to keep the vision for the further unfolding of a healthy, creative and fulfilling live.
In this spirit we send you our invitation and heartfelt greetings,
Cornelia & Siegmar Gerken
Work with us
With over 40 years
experience in the fields of Humanistic, Transpersonal and
Somatic Psychology we naturally address all professional topics.
Psychology, Spirituality and Science – Teaching Mindfulness for the Understanding of the Unity of All Existence.
For participants who want to expand their consciousness and choices in life and for practitioners who want to bring an integrative body-oriented dimension to their work.
Who we are
We understand our commitment and work of over forty years in CORE EVOLUTION®
as a contribution to an emotionally integrated, peaceful society.
Core Evolution is an integrative, relational, psychodynamic, body-oriented and mindfulness-centered therapy - an innovative approach to a Whole Person Psychology based on Mindfulness and rooted in the Essence of Being. Its foundation is the comprehensive understanding that essence and life energy are expressed through our Core - the center of the individuated universal life energy, a wellspring of healing, joy, creativity and wisdom.
Core Evolution addresses the pulsation of life in each of us. Life expresses itself in pulsation. Every breath, every heartbeat, every movement, every thought represents the flow of life in us. If this flow is distorted or restricted, we limit our perception and expression in life. Therefore we recognize and support the interconnectedness on all levels of our existence.
Core Evolution addresses the wholeness of a person – the personal qualities and unique potential. From this trust in our inherent power of love, goodness, creativity and capacity for self-healing, we address the obstacles and limitations a person faces to freely unfold these qualities and move toward self-realization – personally and professionally.
Core Evolution Summer Intensive
Embodiment, Presence and Self-Empowerment
September 16 - 20, 2020 • Europe
We are grateful that we can work online and enjoy teaching and witnessing great transformations in our online individual and group work.
However, there are certain atmospheres that you cannot really create online. There are moments of deep processing that does not really happen online. There is a certain magic when people physically enter into a group room, when you look into their eyes and you perceive the anticipation to move beyond the ordinary.
That is why we offered our Summer Intensive now for the last 37 years! More then ever, people are looking forward to getting out and to safely meeting again in an expanding and meaningful way.
Of course, this is a difficult year for group meetings. We feel good to hear, that a number of people are still interested in participating in our unique Core Evolution Intensive this year. However, for the group and for ourselves, we only want to meet, when restrictions are lifted, when we can travel more safely again and when we can meet in a place that fulfills all the standards for a meeting where we can be at ease.
We are in discussion with some wonderful locations. For more convenience we moved the dates to include a weekend, to September 16 - 20, 2020. You may want to earmark this date.
We will send you an update as soon we can see, that we can responsibly proceed with another transformative Summer Intensive.
